Industrial traffic, primarily logging and mining, used to be common on the Stewart Road, but now (2002), these are about the only trucks you'll see. They're hauling gold ore from Barrick Gold's Eskay Creek mine, about 50 air miles north of Stewart. From Stewart, the ore goes to a smelter in Japan. This view is to the north from Bear Pass, on September 19, 2002.
